Default Re: Harry Conway???!!!!!!!

Make sure your definition includes, The Redneck Wars, and it has to do with coal miner unions back in the 1920 and 1930's. The Rednecks were those that wore red bandanas around their necks to show that they were pro union, and has nothing to do with the over used defintion of a sunburned sod buster. Being the grandson of a coal miner from West Virginia I cringe at the mis-used Redneck to mean some southern hick. Get back to me if you need any other help.
